Argentina: The Disappearing Middle Class

Video: A centruy ago Argentina was the wealthiest country in Latin America. Today it is losing its middle class to poverty. The dichotomy between rich and poor grows wider. The trust of Argetinians in their government has collapsed. Emigration is increasing. Beggars and the homeless are omnipresent. Hapless Buenos Aires continues to look like Paris and feel like Flint. Sherwin Wine recently made a journey to Argentina. He will share his experiences.
